Parkers Long Term Car Reviews

Parkers long-term test fleet

  • Read all the latest updates from our long-term fleet
  • We live with them to really get under their skin
  • Fuel consumption calculated from real-world driving

The Parkers team has a fleet of cars that we use on a regular basis in order to find out exactly what they are like to live with. This gives us a deeper insight into what you can expect from ownership, highlighting any problems that only appear after several thousand miles, and what fuel economy you'll get in the real world.

Also be sure to check out what we've run previously on the Parkers fleet - chances are we've lived with the very car you're thinking about buying.
